India’s Broadband Speed increased
According to the research, India’s overall performance in mobile download speeds has improved steadily over time, with a minor decrease in the months from December 2020 to April 2021, according to the report.
While there was a minor decline in mobile download speeds from June 2021 to July 2021, from 17.84 Mbps to 17.77 Mbps, India maintained its position as the world’s 122nd largest mobile market.
According to a new insights study by Ookla on the Indian telecom sector, network performance is expected to improve with the rollout of the 5G spectrum. According to Speedtest statistics, recent 5G deployments in the Asia Pacific region hint at a potential ten-fold improvement in the median download speed in the region (5G vs 4G-LTE).
UAE and Monaco have retained their top positions in both mobile broadband and fixed broadband, according to the July Global Speedtest Index, which has a mean download speed of 190.03Mbps and 256.70Mbps, respectively, similar to their positions in June 2021.
A monthly comparison of Speedtest data from across the world is made by Ookla’s Speedtest Global Index. Actual individuals use Speedtest to test their internet speed every month, and the data used to compile the Global Index originates from the hundreds of millions of tests conducted by real people.
Telecom firms or operators were more prepared during the second wave of Covid-19, according to Sppedtest by Ookla, since they had secured a range of spectrum bands during that time frame, according to the company.
This enabled them to oversee a greater portion of their network farms. Median download speeds climbed from 8.52 Mbps in the first quarter of 2021 to 10.44 Mbps in the second quarter of 2021, according to the study. Meanwhile, 4G Service reached 96.0 percent in the second quarter of 2021, an increase from 93.5 percent in the last quarter of 2020.
